What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Over the years, we have seen many games grow and improve on Early Access thanks to the feedback of the community. Now that it’s time for us to release our first game, we’re looking forward to working with the community to make Lovecraft’s Untold Stories reach its full potential.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We plan to be in Early Access for a short time, from 3 to 4 months – enough time to gather feedback and implement any changes the game might need.
However, our plans for Lovecraft’s Untold Stories do not end on full release! We will release it when we are confident that the game fulfills the vision we had when we started working on it, but afterward, we plan on keep working on it and add more content in future updates. There are a lot of great Lovecraft stories, after all!”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The core gameplay is already in the game, and the most important game mechanics will not suffer many changes except for balancing and improvements in the overall player experience. There might be extra layers of gameplay depending on the feedback we receive and the progress of the Early Access period. In terms of content, however, the full release version will have more of everything: more characters, more levels, more bosses, more creatures of the Myths, more items, etc.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Lovecraft’s Untold Stories is already fully playable, with all its main features implemented. Currently, it includes the following:
  • 5 levels
  • 2 characters (1 of them unlockable)
  • 1 big boss
    The rest of the content will be included via update during the Early Access period or released when the game moves to full release.

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The price of the game will increase once the game moves to full release.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“The main reason behind our decision to launch Lovecraft’s Untold Stories first in Early Access is the involvement of the Steam community, so we will pay a lot of attention to their feedback. We will establish several means of communication between the community and us, including (but not necessarily limited to) the official Steam forums, social media channels, and a Discord server. We will keep our development priorities and roadmap as transparent as possible, and release updates regularly with new content.”

New patch available (Version 0.80)

Dear investigators, the version 0.80 comes to impress you all! Prepare yourself because along with the usual improvements in balance, and resolution of bugs, we bring new content that will leave you speechless. Here we go!

NEW CONTENT:
  • Professor's quest line completed: The quest line of the Professor, that we started in the patch 0.79, comes to an impressive and unexpected end, giving a "Go" to the part of the story on which the main star will be our third playable character, the Witch!!

  • Added new levels: Expedition to Antarctica, The lost temple, The Library, R'lyeh!

  • We have included in one of the Professor's levels, the possibility of unlocking the third playable character: The Witch!! You will have to play with the Professor in order to unlock this powerful character.

  • New playable character, The Witch: For now, you can only play with her, to get used to her skills over the elements, in the same levels of the Professor. Using her magic skull as focus, she can shoot mid-range fire bolts to her enemies, and she can summon auras to protect herself and kill every enemy that may surround her. She can create fire, ice & electric auras. Learn which aura will be more effective against each enemy!!



    In a next patch, we will include the special locations and quests of the Witch!

  • Face the all-mighty Cthulhu: Our second Great Old One encounter! Try to stop its awakening! Use all the knowledge and skills of the Professor to avoid this catastrophe!

  • New sound effects

GENERAL FIXES
  • Solved issues in several mini events and quests.

  • Solved the problem on several locations where the player killed every enemy on the room, but the seals on the doors remained, leaving the character locked.

  • The shield of the Professor now damages the parasites of the jungle.

  • Solved the issue where the character lost sanity but appeared a message saying the he recovered sanity.

  • Solved the issue in the Writer shop, that offered items without cost.

IMPROVEMENTS:
  • We have improved the balance for the Professor.

  • Improvements in the AI of the enemies.

  • We have eliminated many grammar and punctuation issues in the text of the game.

We need a lot of feedback from you on this patch, because the amount of new content is quite important. Play with the Professor, try the Witch, tell us if you find any bug.

Thanks a lot for your support!

Watch your steps!!

Dear investigators,
Tonight is high time to share with all of you the new dangers that await those who carelessly advance through the unknown locations that rise up before us.

You really want to watch your steps, because if it wasn´t enough with the dozens of enemies, there are plenty of different traps in the game. Some of which, you know already, and others brand new that for sure will surprise you.

STONE TRAP
If you see a crack on the floor, try to find a way around or jump over it, if you can... Or you will get an instant hamburger of investigator.


SPIKES
Jump over them to dodge the spikes. They are terribly sharp and you´ll bleed for a certain period of time.


ACID PUDDLE
You cannot jump over them to avoid the damage. Just don´t step over them, or find yourself an item to protect you of the effects!


FIRE TRAP
How would you like your investigator? Medium rare or well done?


TENTACLES TRAP
Not only they will grab you, making you go slower for a certain period of time, their caustic matter will damage you as well... Plus, they are nasty as hell!


SPIDER EGGS
Shoot them from afar, if you see them... If you don´t, and they explode when you are near, run as fast as you can, and use any melee attack or protection available.


So, don´t say that we didn´t warn you. Open your eyes, mind your steps... And survive! You are the last hope for the future of the World!

TIMELINE

About This Game

Lovecraft’s Untold Stories is an action RPG with rogue-like elements. You explore randomly generated levels based in H.P. Lovecraft stories, fighting cultists and all kinds of monsters from the Mythos, improving your skills, weapons, and gear, looking for clues and information about the Old Ones and the Outer Gods, and solving puzzles and challenges.



A HORROR ADVENTURE
You have to find a way to foil the Old Ones’ plans—but the path is yours to choose, and brute force may not be the best solution. Will you search for clues and information to stop the cultists before they summon the Outer Gods, or will you just kill everything in your way, until there’s no one left to invoke the cosmic horrors to our world?

LIVE H.P. LOVECRAFT’S STORIES
Levels are randomly generated: It will be a different experience every time you play. Lovecraft’s Untold Stories is based on H.P. Lovecraft’s stories: You will experience first-hand the cosmic horror created by the genius of Providence. Look for items and clues to unlock secrets and new stories!



5 DIFFERENT CHARACTERS
You can play as 5 different characters, each with a different playstyle. A private detective, a witch, a thief, a professor, and even a ghoul—each with different stats, weapons, and combat moves, creating five entirely different gameplay experiences.

MADNESS AND DEATH
The truth of the dark horrors that inhabit the universe is unbearable for any human mind. As you learn more of the Mythos, you become more powerful—but also brings you closer to the brink of madness. You will need to find a balance to keep your sanity—but in the end, you can’t win against the Old Ones. Madness or death await you. But maybe you can delay the inevitable…
